Joy Atkins Bollinger began her training at the Fort Worth School of Ballet under the direction of Victoria Fedine and Paul Mejia at the age of seven. As a student, she performed in productions of The Nutcracker and Cinderella with The Fort Worth Ballet Company. Bollinger was invited to the Cedar Island Summer Intensive for two consecutive years where she lived and studied with Suzanne Farrell. At Texas Christian University, she performed in dances by choreographers Fernando Bujones, Li-Chou Cheng, and Elizabeth Gillaspy and earned a BFA in ballet. Her professional career began with the Bruce Wood Dance Company in 2002. Bollinger worked with BWDC for four years while also dancing as a guest artist for Irving Ballet, Metropolitan Classical Ballet, and Madison Ballet. From 2007 to 2013, Bollinger co-directed the Arlington Heights High School Dance Department, developing a passion for teaching and choreography. As a founding member of BWDP, Bollinger restages Wood’s works. The success of her first full length dance on the company, Carved In Stone, marks a turning point for her choreographic career.
Joy’s class will begin with a ballet barre, followed by contemporary phrasework in the center.
